Some of my favorite Common Eider shots

I've been on an intense program lately and have not been able to go out and get fresh content. So I hope you don't mind if I throw out this material from a few years ago.

I was walking by the docks and saw a couple of male Common Eiders sauntering in. This is a bit unusual because the tend to shy away from people. But sometimes you get lucky and if you are in an area where they are used to see fishermen working on the docks, they may come in. This time I got lucky.

Oh Steve how I would love to photograph an Eider. They are so cool looking. You did a great job and my favorite is the last one. You know how I love blue water and sun. Stay warm up there.Carol
